12 Facts You Might Not Know About The Avengers
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there's always some new obscure fact to learn. That's why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our new video series. You think you know comics? Well here's a few things you might not know!
This week, we're talking about the Avengers, a team that you might've heard of thanks to a movie that made literally all the money in the entire world a few years ago. But while you might know all about Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, and, uh, Thor, they weren't the only characters to fill those suits. This week, we dust off a few obscurities to show you other heroes who had those famous identities, from the good (Bucky Barnes as Captain America) to the best-left-forgotten. That's right -- it's TEEN TONY, Y'ALL!
- If you're curious about the other characters who have been Captain America, most of them show up to play pretty important roles in Brubaker and Epting's Winter Soldier.
- If you're curious about Eric Masterson, his high point is definitely showing up as Thor in The Infinity Gauntlet.
- If you'd like to know more about Hawkeye and Hawkeye, read Hawkeye. J/K, you're already reading Hawkeye.
- If you're curious about Teen Tony, stop. Stop being curious about Teen Tony. Down that road lies either madness or a career writing about terrible old comics, and I don't need you coming after my job.
